Vascular Control of Organ Function
13 - 15 May, 2024 | Mannheim, Germany
the announcing flyer
Since its inauguration in January 2019, the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1366 “Vascular Control of Organ Function” aims at studying emerging gatekeeper and regulatory functions of organotypically differentiated endothelial cells and other cells of the vessels wall during development, homeostasis and disease. In 2023, CRC1366 started its second funding period following a successful review.
The CRC 1366 takes a leading role in the emerging field of “Angioscience” research, i.e., the molecular and functional analysis of vascular control mechanisms of organ function. Considering the involvement of vascular dysfunction in numerous chronic and life-threatening diseases, the better molecular understanding of organotypic vasculatures will lay the scientific foundation to pave the way towards novel angiotargeted therapies to treat hitherto intractable diseases.
All sessions will take place in the „Alte Brauerei“ in Mannheim:
Take the tramline 2 or 7 to the "Bibienastraße". Cross the road and the traffic island towards the corner building with the brick veneer. Just round the corner is the inner courtyard.
Mannheim is located about 80 km from “Frankfurt Rhein-Main International Airport” (FRA).
Upon arrival at the Frankfurt Airport, follow the signs to the train station “Fernbahnhof”. From there you can take a train directly Mannheim Central Station.
